Noble Rot is an ecosystem. A glacial well hydrates the building and the 3000 sq foot garden on the roof. The vegetables grown there supply the restaurant. Since 2002, The Rot has educated, entertained and fed Portland. Local, national and international media have consistently praised our style. Noble Rot’s situation is unique and our view is extraordinary.

Food and drinks are excellent, atmosphere is super special: artsy and romantic with great views from the balcony. This restaurant is on the 4th floor. Service can be slow but if you are not in a hurry- you will survive.

Great experience and food. The menu could be a little more defined into categories as the salads, small plates and main courses seemed to run together.

One of our favorite restaurants in Portland. I don't even know where to begin. First, they've done a great job of making everyone feel safe. The restaurant is spotless, employees are masked as are patrons. Spacing is very evident. That addresses our current state of affairs.

We return for the food and ambiance. The view is spectacular, the food is divine. Throw in a great wine list and the BEST restaurant staff in Portland and you've got a winner. I do hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Small dinner menu. Not much to choose from. The portions are very small and one meal is not enough to feel full. We had a rude waiter that ruined our experience.

This place seems much better for a pre/post dinner drink and a view rather than for food. Nothing special for food but the price seemed to think highly of it.

Based off my first and only visit so far. I went for dinner with my husband. The ambience is what makes the place! I think the food was subpar, I got overcooked shrimp and hard crusted bread. My husband loved his burger so there is that. I think it is an ideal place to relax and have a nice drink after dining somewhere else. The staff was very nice and provided great service!

Our table was set beautifully and complete with fantastic service. The onion rings were AMAZING; a must have! The entres were also fantastic, we had steak and pasta. To end the evening, we chose a brownie dessert which was our favorite part of the meal! The cocktails were deliciously poured. 10/10.

Excellent food, and drinks were exceptional if a little overpriced. More than a 50% markup on wine? Should have brought my own.

This place is just lovely. The service was wonderful, and we enjoyed some of the best mixed drinks that we’ve ever had. Highly recommend the Sex with a View in a pineapple. But the real draw is the balcony. Gorgeous views, very romantic. The only downside is that the food is just ‘okay.’ We’ll be back for drinks and appetizers next time we’re in Portland, but probably won’t eat a full meal here again.

Food and service was great until the end. Don’t go here if you plan on being here for awhile and catching up with friends. Trying to be understanding since I work at a restaurant and everything is so different. But this place just left a bad taste in my mouth.

Wonderful view of the Portland skyline. We were able to enjoy the sunset during our dinner experience. The dining area is small and intimate, and after the sun sets, you dine with dim lighting and candlelight. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday. Our table ordered the salmon entree, risotto, the pasta of the day, and the pork entree- all tasted great. Our table shared the peanut butter dessert, sponge cake, and the chocolate brownie that our server paired with a few samples of their dessert wines (on the house). Thank you for a wonderful night.

Did not plan to have dinner here but were close by and decided to see if they had room for an early dinner. Although our table did not have the advertised view and people arriving after us got the “good tables” I’m guessing they had previous reservations. Staff was extremely friendly and both my wife’s lamb with sausage stuffing and my short rib with polenta were excellent. Well prepared and served piping hot made both dishes very enjoyable. We were both trying to be good so avoided dessert so can’t comment. Best of all was the extensive wine list. I was expecting mostly Oregon wines but the list was from all regions. We found an excellent Australian Shiraz that was outstanding especially considering the low cost. At first I was afraid to order it due to low cost but waitress assured us it would be a good bottle or not on their menu. It was a bargain and made a very enjoyable dinner at a reasonable cost. Great job to all at Noble Rot!
